10-Year-Old Nico Sapienza is a huge Boston Red Sox fan and he just met his all time favorite player! Thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Nico met Mookie Bets! Mookie promised his new friend that he would hit a home run for him. Not only did Mookie hit a home run.... he hit THREE!! The Red Sox beat the NY Yankees 10-5. Mookie credited his new friend with giving him good luck.
This reminded Paul Schadt of John Candy portraying Babe Ruth's home run story! Enjoy the laugh.
